KBYU-TV to conduct digital test Monday, Nov. 10

On Monday, Nov. 10, KBYU-TV, Channel 11, will help viewers prepare for the change to digital television, which will take place in February 2009.

Several times during the day on Nov. 10, KBYU-TV will conduct a digital conversion test by shutting off the analog signal so that the only signal being sent out will be a digital one. This gives viewers the opportunity to find out if they still need to make any changes to their TV setup in preparation for the digital switchover. Viewers are encouraged to contact KBYU-TV at 1-800-298-5298 with questions regarding the digital television transition.

On Feb. 17, 2009, television stations in the United States will no longer broadcast in analog. Those viewers who receive their television over-the-air will need a simple converter box for their analog television sets or they will not receive the digital television signal.

The Feb. 17 digital transition date does not apply to those who watch digital television sets or who subscribe to cable or satellite service providers.

Almost 25 percent of Utah families currently receive their television through free over-the-air signals using an antenna. The Federal Government is offering a program that enables each household to request two free $40 coupons that can be used at retailers to purchase converter boxes. Only one coupon can be used per converter box.

KBYU-TV is currently broadcast in both analog and digital. Those who purchase a converter box or a digital television set can receive the following KBYU-TV channels: 11.1 — KBYU-TV; 11.2 — BYU Television; 11.3 — BYU Television International; 11.4 — KBYU-Create; and, 11.4 — KBYU-HD from 6 to 10 p.m. each evening.

A complete listing of programming available on KBYU-TV is available at www.kbyutv.org or by calling 1-800-298-5298. Additional information on the digital television transition is available at www.kbyutv.org/dtv.
